pavilion notebook i5-p200
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My pavilion notebook i5-p200 has a Broadcom BCM 43142 802.11 bgn wifi adaptor.

 

Is it possible for me to replace this with an adaptor to receive both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands?

MOR71EA#ABU is invalid. I think it is M0R71EA#ABU (zero, not letter o).  Your machine is an HP Pavilion 15-p200na. I can't find its Official specs. The series supports

The ones in red support 5GHz but the Broadcom requires 2 antenna and your machine only has one.

Thank you for your support and efforts Banhien.

 

Based on that information I'll use a plug in dongle for the 5 GHz band when the 2.4 GHz isn't up to it.

 

Cheers
